For over 15 years, Bird Dog Traffic Control has been recognized as the #1 traffic control company serving North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee, and Texas. However, the company couldn’t have achieved its success without being certified as WBE, SBE, and DBE-certified.

What qualifies a company as a small business?
Larger businesses and corporations are often pushed in specific directions when it comes to the products and services they provide. The owners and decision-makers of these companies can be so far removed from the process that quality relationships between other businesses and clients are never formed.
As a small business, Bird Dog Traffic Control has the luxury of building long-lasting relationships with our clients. We understand your business challenges at a deeper level and have the freedom to relate to you on a personal level.
SBE is a company level diversity certification that is non-industry specific. Eligibility is determined at the state or local levels and is usually dictated by the number of employees, length of time the company has been in business and the net worth of the company’s owner.
For more information on SBE certification, visit the U.S. Small Business Administration website.
Certified as a woman-owned business.
In a male-dominated industry, Bird Dog Traffic Control is proud to be a small business owned and operated by a woman, Crystal Holliday.
In order to be recognized by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) or a WBE program administered by a city, county or state as WBE-certified business, a company must be:
- A for-profit business
- Owned 51% by a woman or group of women
- Board-controlled by a woman or group of women
- Run by an executive officer who is a woman with technical expertise in business activity

What is a DBE Certification?
DBEs (also know as Disadvantaged Business Enterprises) are small businesses that are for-profit and at least 51% owned by individuals recognized as disadvantaged. The groups of individuals perceived to be socially and economically disadvantaged include African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americas, Asian-Pacific and Subcontinent Asian Americans, and women.
How do these certifications impact business?
